    Compensation for back injuries from lifting


    Do you know the proper way to lift something heavy? You would be surprised at how many people have no idea of proper manual handling procedures, and if you’re working in the delivery industry or are regularly lifting heavy loads at work, it’s up to your employer to ensure you receive the training you need in order to avoid back injuries from lifting.

    If you’re a warehouse worker who has sustained back injuries from lifting or a delivery driver who can no longer work after a manual handling accident, we’ve got news for you – good news. You could make a claim for personal injury compensation from your negligent employer, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure your claim is successful. Our 100% no win, no fee* service ensures that everyone can afford to claim with us – if successful, your legal fees will be paid for out of your personal injury settlement.

    Serious back injuries

    The back is the largest are of the body, made up of a complex network of tendons, ligaments and muscles. It connects our neck, shoulders and arms to our hips, legs and feet, so you can imagine that injuring your back could cause pain in practically any other body part. A serious back injury may require surgery, whilst other injuries may be less severe but could cause ongoing pain. It’s often hard to explain a back injury to a potential future employer – it’s not a visible injury but it can be debilitating, making it hard to stand or sit or long periods of time, and often making heavy lifting impossible.

    If you’ve been injured after being asked to lift abnormally heavy loads at work or have not received proper manual handling training and have suffered a back injury, find out if you could claim personal injury compensation. You have three years after your accident in which to make a claim, and it could be the best thing you will ever do.

    Recovering from your injuries

    Whether you need to spend time in hospital after injuring your back at work or simply need a few months off to recuperate, your earnings will be affected. Claim compensation with Accident Advice Helpline and you could be awarded a settlement which could help your family out financially until you’re back on your feet. So why not call our freephone helpline today on 0800 689 0500 and see whether you have a viable claim?
